    I noticed we didn't have the "I got the job!" thread that we've had in years past, so I'll start one even though it's months late.

    I was offered the job on the spot so I didn't have to wait, but that might be good information to share since that doesn't always happen.

    Location: Oregon
    Position: 9th Grade Phys. Sci.
    How many applications sent out: 5 (3 were in one district, 2 were in another)
    How many interviews: 2

    I had 3 schools schedule interviews with me from the same district. I got through two interviews, one right after the other, and apparently they started fighting over who would get me. The third school, who scheduled the next day told me this (before I got any official word), said they didn't want to get dragged into the fight, and said that I could choose to cancel the interview if I wanted either of the first two jobs. LOL. I will admit that the ordeal boosted my ego quite a bit. The other school district, I applied late to, so their positions filled before they could schedule an interview, but by that time I already accepted a position.
